Tacoma — The U.S. Postal Service will conduct an unprecedented one-day hiring “Mega Blitz” for 800 mail carriers, mail handlers, clerks, automotive technicians and motor vehicle operators at the Tacoma Star Center Voyager Studio 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and eight additional postal facilities across Tacoma from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on November 8, 2022.

“The key to success for any organization, including our hometown Seahawks® and Huskies®, is the consistent recruitment of quality players,” said Tacoma Postmaster Karen Bacon. “In the case of this Mega Blitz hiring event, we’re looking for 800 superstar recruits to help stock our roster and lead the Postal Service to victory on the field of customer service!”

The available postal positions, which offer starting pay from $18.92 to $30.97 an hour, are great opportunities for anyone seeking fast-paced, rewarding work environments with good pay, and are a first step that could lead to long-term careers for the Postal Service.

“As outlined in our USPS Delivering for America plan, we’re modernizing and continually adapting to the changing needs of our customers,” said Bacon. “In order to do that, we need motivated, dedicated people to join us to deliver for our local communities and our nation.

There’s never been a better time to join the Postal Service. Throughout the COVID pandemic, our employees have played essential roles in their communities. When people have been confined to their homes, when stores and supermarkets have experienced shortages or been shut down, we delivered medicines to house-bound seniors, household supplies to those unable to shop at stores, and COVID tests to anyone who needed them.

“We are a vital lifeline between our local communities and the outside world.

“We invite interested applicants to attend one of our job fairs if they want to join our winning team. If they’re looking for meaningful careers, and not just another job, we want them to join us!”

The eight Washington postal facilities that will host job fairs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on November 8, 2022 are listed below. USPS personnel will be onsite at the job fairs to answer questions, assist potential applicants and provide detailed information about available positions.
